Amateur, Masters and Professional Sparring for all levels; Whether you are a professional or amateur boxer looking for the best quality sparring partners in the city or you are a mma, muay thai, karate expert or kickboxer looking to get an edge on your competition, we can help you.
Some people who want to try sparring but don’t want to go to work the next day with a bruised rib or black eye. We would love to help you in a controlled sparring environment where there is very little to no contact so you can see what it is really like. We will make sure that the person you are sparring with is able to control themselves so that you can get the most realistic experience in the ring.
Cross Training and Hockey Specific Training all ages
Eric de Guzman grew up playing AAA hockey from Atoms until Midget. Eric was also a local Cochrane General of the Heritage Junior B Hockey League from 2001-2003 serving as the assistant captain. Growing up playing a high level of hockey in Penticton gave Eric many hockey contacts and cross training ideas for Teofista Boxing gym. Eric de Guzman, Duncan Keith, and Hayley Wickensheiser communicate on a regular basis on training tips and new upcoming methods for training. Eric is very excited and enjoys teaching hockey players in specific on the sweet science as it teaches much more than punching. Body awareness, balance, endurance, and eye hand co-ordination are some aspects gained through boxing training. Not to mention when using the boxing equipment such as the heavy bag, speed bags, double end bags, slip bags, and others.
Personal Training can be tailored to your specific training needs. Whether you want to learn the basics of boxing or have a goal in mind, person- al training is meant to meet your needs. Personal training is the focus of Eric de Guzman as it is the easiest way to see and receive training ben- efits. You set your own schedule and time as Eric is available all day most days even if it is at 6am before you go to work downtown.
